Super Cool Space Sounds From NASA!
You're gonna want to turn this one up!
Ever wonder what space might sound like? Well, the super smart folks at NASA recently used their amazing brains to sonify an image that the Hubble Space Telescope sent us back in August of 2018. According to their website, what you are hearing is the sound representation of a cluster of galaxies. "Time flows left to right, and the frequency of sound changes from bottom to top, ranging from 30 to 1,000 hertz. Objects near the bottom of the image produce lower notes, while those near the top produce higher ones. "
Now, NASA's description on the video is very science-y. And I am sure those in the know, know exactly what they're talking about. But reading through the comment section, as I often do, user traeng broke it down in even simpler terms. "Explanation for all of those who don't understand that. The sound you hear here, is not recorded. It is made by a computer, and simply reads from left to right. The higher a star is on the picture, the higher the pitch you will hear. The bigger, the louder the pitch. The white line goes from left to right, and plays sounds as it goes over a star."
I think it's kind of a mix of creepy and cool, all at once. Neat!
